Q: Can I still get a lawyer half way into my case?
I couldn't afford a lawyer until now , my ex is taking me to court for joint legal decision making with final say and child support. The kids have been in my custody this whole time ages 10 and 3 , he's never financially taken care of them and has always been inconsistent in their lives . My question is will it be too late to get a lawyer? We are set to go to trail in about two months.
Of course. Your attorney will have some catching up to do but you are absolutely able to hire counsel (the judge will likely be happy about it).
I would not hesitate any longer, however.
